shows. in a statement to fox news radio the church says quote we regret what this issue has become. as a church it is not our desire to put hard-working sacrificial teachers and cast members in harm's way. >> they also tell fox news they had nothing to do with the cancellation. they were planning to go ahead with the field trip despite the threats of the atheist's church. >> they welcome the students to weekend performances there. >> that is too bad ainsley. >> 16 after the hour. still ahead an employee gets his own gun to save his boss who was being held at gun point by a robber. how did auto zone thank him? they fired him? is that legal? a former prosecutor weighs in next. >> could your tax dollars has tax companies expanding. there's one problem. it's in china.

>> so is auto zone's actions legal? we have alex felix. >> auto zone's point is every time you introduce a gun or a second gun into a volatile situation like that it escalates the risk for everyone. >> no good deed goes unpunished. this strikes a lot of people as very unfair in this particular case. he's an air force veteran expecting his first child and regarded his co-workers like family members and he did what any one would do to protect family members. legal splieking auto zone can change the policy. they have a policy of disengage when a potentially dangerous situation arises it says you have to back off disengage retreat and leave it to law enforcement. auto zone said we have zero tolerance when it comes to employees having weapons. when they sglier row tolerance they mean zero tolerance.

sure we discourage employees from escalating center lines or bringing guns into the store. he didn't show up with a gun he retrieved his legal weapon when he saw his employee regarded as family in trouble. >> this guy was familiar in the area. he had committed 30 similar armed robberies and no one was hurt in any of the robberies he holds the gun takes the money and runs. this guy said i recognized him. is is there an argument that he is not a violent offender an everything will be fine and now you pull out a gun and maybe there's a shoot out and people die. >> up to this point this guy -- many of us would feel a sense of fear for people we care about. up to this point.
>> this guy is a civilian. a lot of judgment calls you are asking him to make as to what might or might not happen. facebook called for a boycott of auto zone unless maclaine is rehired. rules are rules nobody gets a company's attention more quickly than losing customers to competitors. >> wal-mart employees years ago they threatened to boycott. it wasn't all that effective but it was an interesting case. >> thank you for joining us. >> 25 minutes after the hour.d suicide. >> if he didn't have a gun he and sandra perkins would be alive. >> now the sports anchor is responding to his critics. >> if verizon gets huz way they will be able to hear everything you say during your private phone conversations. fist rst on this day in hisy in 1964, you really got me by

they would bear the blame if we do go over the edge. the president sat down with bloomberg news yesterday to talk about this. he said he might be willing to budge on some things but tax rates on the wealthy must go up. republicans should agree to raise them he says now and trust them that spending cuts will go away. >> let's put a down payment on taxes let's let tax rates on the upper income folks go up. >> they have heard these problems before any deal must tackle entitlements such as medicare and social security to put them on a sustainable path. vice presidential candidate and budget chairman paul ryan says the overall thinking has to change. >> the problem they are the same. but the old ways won't do. we need new thinking and renewed efforts from all americans.
